states code with respect to the american community survey. the chair: pursuant to thed orer of the house from today, the gentleman from texas, mr. poe, and a member opposed will each control five minutes. the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. poe. mr. poe: thank you, mr. chairman. the american community survey, first of all, is not the census. what it is is a survey conducted by the census bureau of a portion of the american population every year. it has 48 questions. and those questions are intrusive. and there is, in by -- in my opinion, intimidation by the community survey workers to get this information from citizens. a woman, a single mother in my district, told me that one of the workers came by her house, started peeping in the window, knocking on the door, sat in the street, waiting for her to come home from work to get this information from her.
